There are already many health risks of taking the abortion pill, also known as medical abortion. Getting the abortion pill online and taking it at home without proper medical oversight or pregnancy confirmation can be a threat to your health and safety. 

If you are wondering if an online abortion (or at-home abortion) is safe, keep reading to learn more about the risks.

Know The Risks

There are multiple risks to online abortion (or at-home abortion). Here are a couple to consider before moving forward.

1. Unregulated Sources & Wrong Dosage

One of the safety risks of ordering the abortion pill online is the risk of receiving the wrong dosage of drugs as well as the unknown quality. The FDA recommends against online abortion because online providers are often unregulated or located overseas. 

The product you receive online may or may not be fully safe and effective, risking your health and safety when going about this type of abortion method.  

2. A Lack of Medical Oversight

Seeing a medical professional in person before any type of abortion is recommended for the utmost comprehensive care. Medical oversight is needed to protect your health and safety with medical abortion. Online abortion poses a risk to your health due to the often minimal medical oversight. 

It’s important to understand that you may not be eligible for the abortion pill, as the FDA recommends medical abortion only through 10 weeks of pregnancy. 

Pregnancy confirmation, including pregnancy testing and an ultrasound, is needed before an abortion to safeguard your health and understand your unique pregnancy details. An ultrasound is the only way to confirm exactly how far along you are and will alert you to any potential health complications, like an ectopic pregnancy or miscarriage

First, Confirm Your Pregnancy Details

Pregnancy confirmation is not only to be sure you’re pregnant but to understand the health of your pregnancy and your available options, including abortion.
